Next time you see them at the market, you'll know exactly what to do.

Thistle Hill Tavern is the Brooklyn restaurant from Top Chef alum and all-around kitchenmaster Dale Talde. The casual spot plays up the bounty of local, seasonal ingredients and its menu is packed with stuff you really want to eat. Like a taco salad, but not a terrible taco salad.

Mexican cooking is warm-weather cooking for us, and here are 12 recipes to help get you in the mood.

Fall down the Tumblr hole of cover art and tacos
May 19, 2014 3:00 pm

This is an official call to our friends, Chicago-based DJs The Hood Internet, to please revive Album Tacos. Their Tumblr (as is congruous with their style) is a mashup of two great things: album art and, you guessed it, the mighty taco. Dormant since December of 2013 (AHEM!), this page still deserves some views. In fact, check out a few of the reader-submitted posts and just try to stop.
